We finally got our ONE phonecall. We all talked for about 15 min. and had great fun. He is lonesome but is still having a good time. He liked the caving, although he said it was muddy, and he said the rock climbing was really easy. He likes the ropes course the best so far. His voice sounds so calm and grown up. He's starting to get that froggy up-down octave adolescent tone. Oooh, my baby! The postcards we got in the mail recently said the counselors are "awesome" and he's really looking forward to caving. There are four girls and four boys, ages 11-17. They all get along pretty welll, although he did say he got into trouble twice for fighting. What? Turns out it was an argument, not a fistfight. The kids have to come up with-their own punishments. He didn't have one, he just got into trouble, whatever that means. Go back to your cabin, probably. Several of the trips they've taken have been over the border of Tennessee. I hadn't known that before. I'm mailing another disposable camera because he's used up the two I gave him. They get eletricity when they do the laundry, and that is also where they watch TV. He found our there was a hurricane in TX and another one in N and S. Carolina. I thought they did not get any TV, but if it enoucourages the kids to sit tight during the spin cycle, what he heck. His girlfriend from the camp in Williamsburg called last night. We told him tonight, and he was very happy and said he would definiitely call her back. (I'll be keeping an eye on the phone bill.) All in all, he's having a good time and says it's very hard work. That's a good thing! :grins: Two more weeks!
